I am interested.

After some discussion, we have decided to create a work area in the
equinox incubator to work on improving the p2 support for publishing
features and products. We are doing this work in the incubator to better
facilitate others participating.

The goal here is to unify the p2 and PDE (and other) publishing
implementations to make a single, robust, easily consumed publishing
mechanism for features and products. This should address a number of
concerns around non-PDE build production of features and products. For
more details, see Bug 331974
<https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=331974>. This should be a
relatively short-term effort with a goal of getting changes into the
mainstream by 3.7M6 if not earlier.

The work will be carried out in the existing Equinox incubator in CVS at

This area will be primed with a copy of p2.publishing and pde.build (and
the related tests).

If you are interested in working on this effort, please make yourself
and your particular concerns known on the p2-dev mailing list. From
previous conversations Brian de Alwis has some contributions and I'll
start an election for him as an equinox incubator contributor presently.
